We are currently taking your suggestions for our 2020 One Read title, and we’ll be highlighting some of these books here at oneread.org so you can see what other community members are reading and enjoying. All of these titles will be considered by our reading panel as they begin narrowing down the list of suggestions.
The first One Read suggestion we’re highlighting is “From Here to Eternity: Traveling the World to Find the Good Death” by Caitlin Doughty. This book describes death customs and rituals from around the world, exploring how they compare to the impersonal American system and how mourners respond best when they participate in caring for the deceased. The person who nominated this book stated “it sparks the end-of-life discussion, which is a discussion people sometimes never have with their loved ones.”
Let us know what you think our community should read in 2020 by filling out a suggestion form at any of our branches, the bookmobile, or online at oneread.org by November 30.
